Professional bodies

Mariette Lobo is on the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council Accredited Register

The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) is the UK voluntary regulator for complementary therapists.

CNHC was set up with government support to protect the public by providing a UK voluntary register of complementary therapists.

CNHC's register has been approved as an Accredited Voluntary Register by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care.

Mariette Lobo is registered with the British Reflexology Association

The Bayly School of Reflexology is the official teaching body of The British Reflexology Association and was the first Reflexology training school to be established in Great Britain.

The Bayly Method of treatment is unique to The Bayly School in that the thumb is not flexed and extended in a caterpillar-like movement so the method is less stressful on the thumb (and finger) joints and the less rapid movement is considered to be more relaxing to the patient.
